Dust the sand from between your toes, peel off the wetsuit or throw on a bikini cover up and some flip flops and head straight from the beach to California Kebab & Beer Garden - an oasis of great food and the finest beer sitting loftily one block from the board walk in Pacific Beach. Cali Kebab has brought a new level of delicious, healthy, and relatively quick food to PB, while maintaining the chilled-out surfer vibe this neighborhood is known for. And if savory Mediterranean specialties weren't enough of a draw, Cali-Kebab has partnered with their in-house brewpub Amplified Ale Works to offer some innovative beers while also serving the cream of the crop from other (mostly local) breweries. And to top it all off, everything is served with a salty breeze and ocean views.

Cali-Kebab has thought up some amazing weekly specials. During their weekday happy hour (Monday through Friday from 3 - 6 pm), select draft beers are half off - and these guys do not skimp when it comes to their 'select' beers. You will never see a Bud Light or Corona on this beer list. Amplified Ale Works, headed up by brewermaster Cy Henley, has recently entered the craft beer scene and has reached new levels of speedy success within the ever-thriving San Diego craft beer industry. Cy's resume includes experience at Ballast Point, Alpine and Green Flash, and he obviously enjoys putting forth the hard work that creates amazing beers. We sampled one of his latest delectable creations: a French whiskey barreled Belgian strong ale with creamy coffee notes, weighing in at 16+ ABV. It was amazing and seemed to get better with each sip.
Amplified will be releasing a not-to-be-missed imperial stout this week with chocolatey-cherry flavors. JC Hill, one of the founders, is a dedicated beer enthusiast and connoisseur, and his knowledge of amazing beers is evident in the extensive tap list he maintains. Aside from Amplified Ale Works' beers, currently on tap is the unique Ballast Point Habanero Sculpin IPA, Coronado Idiot IPA, Green Flash Le Freak Belgian IPA, Societe The Debutante, and Lagunitas WTF, to name a few of the 21 beers available on draft. In addition to beer and wine, Cali Kebab offers Boylan fountain sodas and an array of cocktails, including an overloaded spicy Bloody Mary that was awarded the title of "Best of the Beach."
